Product-service system business models are a common circular economy solution, but understanding ownership trends also necessitates understanding the customers needs.

One approach to understand these needs is Kansei Engineering. It translates the client's psychological feelings and needs into the product design. This project aims to investigate the feelings and needs of UK car customers, whether for buying, renting or sharing models. As a result, a list of Kansei Words is elaborated and prioritised by car business models, and the need for ownership is compared between four models. This comparison is designed to identify barriers and drivers for circular vehicle designs.
